I bought 2 pearl bracelets for Fiona and Eunice at RMB140 each.(It is one of the Wuxi local specialties as a souvenir gift. I did not buy the cream. Maybe I was so facinated and amazed by the many pearls jewellery there till I forgot to buy a bottle of cream for myself.

On the way for lunch, Xiao Fang our tour guide in Wuxi taught us how to say some words in Wuxi dialect. I can't remember all of it. I like the way Xiao Fang called the word "duck"
